JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars released receiver Allen Hurns and tight end Marcedes Lewis on Tuesday, creating more than $10 million in cap space.
The 33 year-old faced competition for the starting role after Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul were both brought in to bolster the depth chart earlier in the Free Agency period. After helping lead the roster from the pit of the AFC South all the way to Foxboro' and the AFC title game, it is a shame that the most tenured player on the 2017 roster won't be able to enjoy any continued success in Jacksonville.
Hurns tweeted thanks to the Jaguars for his time with the organization and said he's looking forward to what's next in his career.

While the Colts certainly have a need at wide receiver, especially with the departure of Moncrief, but $9.6 million is definitely out of the range Ballard like had for Moncrief, who is coming off of arguably his worst season since entering the league as a third-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
The move is somewhat surprising as the Jaguars picked up the veteran's contract option for this season just a few weeks ago. He caught 64 passes for 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2015, making him one of only four receivers in franchise history to surpass 1,000 yards in a season.
Seeing the Jacksonville Jaguars part ways with Hurns after losing Allen Robinson to free agency may seem like a surprise to some since Blake Bortles clearly needs all of the help he can get in the passing game after past year. He could join another team as a viable receiving option in the offense.
